60. The Texas Chainsaw Massacre (1974)
Show Notes

(A Ben & Tom episode - prepare for bone dry humour and challenges to the absurd.)

Flogoween edition!

Topics discussed during the episode:

Did Tobe Hooper make a massive booboo by going with the name Leatherface over headcheese?

There is a chaotic discussion on the various lots of sequels, remakes, prequels, & 3D experiences out there to enjoy!   

Which famous London landmark does Leatherface find himself in?

Did the 70s bring horror to life?

Why daylight horror is a whole new form of unpleasantness

The Thomas shows off his Steelbook edition & talks about how he narrowly escaped being arrested in HMV. 

A Steelbook edition is abit too fancy for me; more griminess & blast off on an old broken VHS copy for me, please. 

What's your favourite face? Dare I say I loved that shade of lippy on Leatherface?

The hitchhiker reminds me of that one friend on a night who always has their phone out, taking pictures to use against you in the morning.

Just how bad was Gunnar Hansen's BO?

Was that Grandpa Sawyer or a wax candle?

I have another Universal studio horror house story that ruins the mystique of the wax candle.

Ed Gein's tit bag would give any of the fashion big hitters a run for their money.

Do you ever spend your lunch break thinking about Leatherface?

To celebrate the spookiest day of the year, we devised the great idea (it wasn't) of attempting to release 31 horror-themed films for every day in October! 

We are excited to partner up with Head in The Game to keep us going through this bonanza month of film watching and recording!

To help support this fantastic cause, FilmFoggers are donating £2.00 per episode released during October. But we also need your help!

We are trying to reach the dizzy heights of getting 1000 downloads during October to add extra sprinkles on top of the pumpkin pie. If we achieve 1000 downloads, Filmfloggers will top up our donation to £100. So even if you have no interest in listening, please think about downloading one or all of our 31 Flogoween films, so we have an excuse to donate more money towards this fantastic cause!
